About the Course

Our online courses for special education certification train the candidates to design and implement lessons geared towards the individual needs and capabilities of the students under their supervision. Special education training online can be taken up by teachers in the preschool, elementary, middle, and high school levels. This career requires education, training and sometimes certification. The learning disabilities certificate online trains the teachers for skills specific to special education teachers, including empathy, patience, and organization. Faculties with certificates in learning disabilities must accurately assess students' progress and adjust lessons to their needs. Special education teachers in public schools need at least a bachelor’s degree or need to go through a special education course online. Some teachers receive a bachelor’s degree specifically in education, or even special education.

In India, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is not considered a learning disability. It is one of the common types of neurodevelopmental disorder that affects the ability of a person to pay attention, concentrate and control impulsive behaviors. Its symptoms include hyperactivity and impulsiveness. This disability is diagnosed in childhood and often lasts till adulthood. On the other hand, a learning disability includes specific difficulties such as reading, writing, solving maths, and practicing other academic activities, even when the individual has average or above average intelligence.
There are different types of learning disabilities. Among them, the most common learning disabilities are Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, and Dyspraxia. Dyslexia affects the person's reading ability and to comprehend written language. Dyscalculia is a math disability that makes it difficult for a person to perform arithmetic operations and understand mathematical concepts. Dysgraphia is a writing disability that affects a person's ability to write legibly and organize thoughts on paper. Dyspraxia, a developmental coordination disorder (DCD), affects the movement and coordination of a person. Similarly, auditory processing disorder, visual perceptual, and nonverbal learning disability are other types of learning disabilities.
